I survived the ’80s, an awkward decade for fashion. I proudly wore giant shoulder pads, acid washed jeans, and I popped my collar with attitude as I strolled through the mall. I made some rather unfortunate style choices back then.
But there is one trend from the ’80s that I miss: BIG HAIR. OK, maybe I don’t miss the explosive bangs or perms, but I do miss my hair’s volume back then.
I’m in my early 50s now, and my hair has changed a lot. It’s more fragile, breaks more easily, and there’s less of it. My ponytail gets smaller and smaller.
That was until I found Better Not Younger.
Hair Care Designed With Women Like Me in Mind
Better Not Younger products are cruelty-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and vegan. I love finding effective products that I can feel good about using.
I have to start this review by highlighting the message of this brand. A woman in her 50s started this company, and it shows. She gets it. The goal isn’t looking younger; it’s looking better. It’s looking your best at any age!
After answering a few questions online, Better Not Younger designed a hair care routine to target my needs. It includes shampoo, conditioner, a supplement, and two products different from any I’ve tried before:
Skin Care Serum for My Scalp
The Superpower Fortifying Hair & Scalp serum has a consistency as thin as water, and it’s packed with ingredients to promote healthier denser-looking hair. Many of the ingredients in this serum, like niacinamide and caffeine, can be found in skincare products. It suddenly occurred to me: My scalp is skin; I should be caring for it like I do my face and body. The other serum ingredients such as ceramide-ng, ginger, and kelp extract help to nourish, revive, and strengthen both the hair follicles and scalp.
It’s easy to use this serum once daily because it’s so light it absorbs quickly and easily. You can use it any time; no need to rinse it out. You don’t even know it’s there! Even more, the serum applicator is so easy to use! Just press the button on the cap, fill the dropper, and distribute the serum cleanly and easily along your scalp.
My New Volumizing Routine
The Wake Up Call Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner are designed to strengthen my hair and cut down on breakage. Ingredients like bamboo help retain moisture, and sage helps clean my hair without stripping it of healthy oils. This pair helps my hair retain moisture without weighing it down and flattening the volume.
The Significant Other Hair Skin and Nails supplement is not just another biotin supplement; it also contains vitamins A and B plus folic acid. If my diet isn’t giving me everything I need, these gummies have me covered.
No Heat Required Thickening Spray
I’ve tried so many thickening sprays that left my roots feeling dry, tangled, and crunchy. Lift Me Up Hair Thickener is different, and it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. It gives me all the volume while still keeping my hair moisturized, healthy, and thick!
Another reason I love it: You do not need to blow dry your hair with heat to activate the product. I like to air dry my hair whenever possible to keep it healthy. Many thickening sprays I’ve tried don’t allow for that.
Better Not Younger is hair care designed with women like me in mind. I was thrilled to find it. Finally, a brand understood my struggle and wanted to help!
It is said that as you age, you become more confident and care less about what others think. It’s a time when you can really let your hair down. With Better Not Younger, I now have more hair to let down.
